THE BRONX - Churches across the Bronx were filled with congregants for Christmas Day Mass. 

Hundreds gathered to celebrate Mass at Our Lady of Angels Church on Sedgwick Avenue.  

"My son was baptized here, my mother used to come here and my grandmother too, so it's tradition and it wouldn't feel like Christmas if I didn't come," one congregant says.

Thousands of people are also expect to attend services at St. Patrick's Cathedral in Manhattan.
